Tunisia bans all porn

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Renders internet pointless
Although Tunisia seemed to have taken a step away from censorship following the Arab Spring, it is clear that it was only an attempt as it moved quickly to reintroduce it.

Namely, sites with pornographic and adult content were blocked for not complying with religious values and posing a danger to Tunisian youth. We’re pretty sure nobody asked the youth though.

Tunisia abolished such censorship with the formation of new government in January. But after banning several specific sites and some Facebook profiles it came into effect once more.

It is said that Tunisian internet traffic goes through a single ISP, which is a dream come true for censors. It also said seven of the top 100 sites visited since January in Tunis were porn sites.

Yet they don't seem to mind prostitution...as far as I remember you can get hookers for a few dollars everywhere in that country.
But oh well, there's no point in reasoning with religious fanatics, right ?

Here we go again... in Arab countries, freedom and democracy seem to be a path to religion taking over the state.

Seriously, from when did RELIGIOUS values become much more worth that MORALE values for the ARABS?? Religion was supposed to teach people morale values, NOT to make people insane and control them! The ARABS brought the word RELIGION to a whole new level.

"We’re pretty sure nobody asked the youth though."
Are you serious?
It's like asking a kid if he wants to do his homework. It's stupid.
